Perhaps, perhaps. Contemplation


Drown me in those eyes

So that I fall with indigent grace,

Perhaps you will catch me

Perhaps I will land on my face.


A bit hard to believe,

How it all becomes

And soon leads-

Simple wonderment.


Hold me with that smile

So that I linger without cause,

Perhaps you will embrace me

Perhaps I will be at loss.


Never mind what was said

Or even heard, at least

The risk I'm willing to take,

Chances with those hopes.


Show me the promise

Upon your lips,

Perhaps your eyes.

Perhaps your smile.


Perhaps you won't become

Another painful memory.
